A Winter Themed Door

In the spirit of the Holidays, I usually decorate my classroom door with my students. This year I decided to go more with a winter theme so that the decorations could stay up during the month of January.

Snowflakes are a must for a winter theme and I decided to place all the snowflakes the children had coloured in a wreath. I love the icy blues and shades of purple that they chose.

On the bottom of the door, my student volunteer and I created a snowy mountain on which I placed snowmen featuring the faces of the children in my class. The children and I love seeing the smiling faces on the door as we approach the room. It is definitely a pleasing way to start the day!

I am crossing fingers that the snowmen stay attached and that none are lost. When I take down the door decorations, I usually paste their work in their workbook so that the memory of our door stays with them.

How have you decorated your door for the winter season?

Happy Halloween!

Today is a day filled with excitement for little people. Streets will be flooded with little phantoms, zombies, and princesses. Spidermen will be sighted, as well as some wizards and Jedi masters.

This year, I am not feeling the vibe for Halloween – instead of feeling the excitement, I cannot wait for it to be over. The reason may be that I am tired and would love to be able to sleep uninterrupted until refreshed. I know, however, that the children are excited for the day so I have done the usual preparations for the celebrations: I have decorated the classroom, prepared some activities, and co-created a Halloween door.

We do love our door and have been enjoying it for the past two weeks.

Tomorrow I will take down the decorations and prepare the space for our next festive celebration.

Do you enjoy Halloween?
